Winston Bakker from the Department of Pathology and Medical Biology-section Pathology passed away a few years ago. He is well-known for his significant contributions to the field of pediatric nephrology and pregnancy related conditions. He left behind a Foundation called Pediatric Nephrology Groningen. It was his sincere wish that the balance on the account of the Foundation was used for research in the field of pediatric nephrology. After he left us, Eline Bakker, Marijke Faas and Harry van Goor took care of the executive duties of the Foundation. After extensive debate they have now decided to grant the positive balance on the account (about Euro 45000,-) to the "de Cock and Hadders Foundation" provided that it will be used for research in the field of pediatric nephrology and pregnancy related conditions. The Euro 45000-, from the Bakker Foundation is additional to the regular activities of the "de Cock en Hadders Foundation" so it is important to add a note in the accompanying letter that your application is meant for this specific call. For applications the template of the "de Cock en Hadders Foundation" can be used as found on their website. The deadline is September 15, 2015. The amount granted per application will be Euro 5000,-. to Euro 8000,- depending on the number of applications. The Board members of the "de Cock and Hadders Foundation" will review the applications. After two years both the family of Winston and the executive members of the Foundation would appreciate to hear the results of the investigations.
